At the January board meeting, the Williams Soil and Water Conservation District’s (SWCD) Board of Supervisors welcomed Dawn Bowling as she began her term serving the residents of Williams County.
Dawn currently works as a Grain Solutions Advisor with Sunrise Co-operative based out of Fremont, Ohio.
She has an Ag Business degree from Michigan State University. Dawn grew up on a farm just south of Edon where she continues to manage the grain operation where they raise corn, beans, and wheat.
Dawn’s family operation has been involved in no-till and conservation practices for several generations as her grandfather and father were faithful stewards of their land.
Working alongside her father, Jim Coleman, over the years and watching him be a leader in the local community has persuaded her of the need to give back while supporting the agricultural community.
